It now has a 383 cu in sbc engine that dynoed at 494 hp, mated to a 700R4 transmission with 2500 stall and electric lockout. This all hooks to a Currie 9" Ford rear with 3.50 gears. The rims are Magnum 500's in 16" - I had to go with 16" rims to get 180 mph tires. Paint is Dodge Aztec Red. Headlight guards are my own design and manufacture. Air conditioner was replaced with a Vintage Air unit, using existing vents. With the Turner Brake upgrade on the front and the discs on the Currie 9", this thing will outbrake a Viper. It is fast, stable and entirely too much fun to drive - Corvettes, Camaros and Mustangs hate me. Tom Carey [Prof.Aqualung] Jackson, MS.
